VIAL 023: A FATHER’S PURSUIT OF JUSTICE AUTHOR GARY CROSS GIVE LUNCHTIME TALK TO LSU LAW SCHOOL COMMUNITY TUESDAY, APRIL 8TH

Louisiana Father’s Memoir Chronicles Loss of Hemophiliac Son from AIDS and Subsequent Landmark Settlement With Drug Companies

WHAT: Gary William Cross will be speaking to the LSU Law School community about the epic legal battle that resulted in a landmark settlement and its subsequent impact in the fields of bioethics and healthcare law. Sponsored by the LSU Law Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Phi-Alpha-Delta-LSU-LAW/235774579807572

WHO:   Cross is an author (http://vial023.com (http://vial023.com)), patients rights advocate, medical ethics crusader and, most importantly, a Louisiana father whose hemophiliac son, Brad, died in April 1993 after becoming infected with HIV through contaminated blood used for his clotting factor treatment. He was 17.  Cross also serves as Board Chairman of Patient Services, Inc. a non-profit medical charitable organization.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 8th from 12:40pm-1:40pm. Admission free to the public. Lunch will be served.

WHERE: Louisiana State University, LSU Law Center, Rm. 108. 1 East Campus      Dr. Baton Rouge LA  70803

MORE: Cross’s talk is in conjunction with Phi Alpha Delta’s annual blood drive, which is going to be held on the previous day: Monday, April 7, 2014.   Cross’ memoir, Vial 023: A Father's Pursuit of Justice tells a gripping and touching story of a largely unknown American health crisis involving the nation's blood supply. The crisis claimed many thousands of lives due to national irresponsibility and lack of proactive oversight. Cross recalls his personal, pivotal role in what was called the nation's "hemophilia HIV pandemic.”

About Patient Services, Inc. Patient Services, Inc. (PSI) https://www.patientservicesinc.org is a ground-breaking 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization. Two decades ago, we recognized the importance of providing a "safety net" for patients with chronic illnesses who were struggling to keep up with expensive premiums and co-payments. Since 1989 we have led the charge to provide much needed patient assistance, soliciting donations to fund thousands of patients and their families in a myriad of disease areas. Today we're flattered by our emulators (other similar foundations) who demonstrate just how critical the need continues to be.
